Canadian Amateurs receive Order of Canada PDF Print E-mail
Written by Administrator   

His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, recently announced 86 new appointments to the Order of Canada. The new appointees include 3 Companions (C.C.), 19 Officers (O.C.) and 64 Members (C.M.). These appointments were made on the recommendation of the Advisory Council for the Order of Canada.

Amongst the list of recipients, RAC would like to recognize and congratulate Veena Rawat, VA3ITU, and Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield, VA3OOG/KC5RNJ for having received this prestigious designation from Canada’s Governor General.

Rawat, VA3ITU, was honored as a “Companion of the Order of Canada” for her contributions to telecom engineering and for leadership in establishing a global regulatory framework for radio spectrum management. Amongst other accomplishments, Rawat chaired the World Radiocommunication Conference in 2003.

Hadfield, VA3OOG/KC5RNJ, was honored as an “Officer of the Order of Canada” for “his commitment to promoting scientific discovery and for sharing the wonders of space exploration with the world.” Hadfield was the International Space Station Expedition 35 commander during his 2013 duty tour. Hadfield’s passion for science, photography and amateur radio is certainly no secret.

Distracted Drivers Legislation: Bill 41 Recieves Royal Assent! PDF Print E-mail
Written by Administrator   

NB Legislature Bill 41 "An Act to Amend the Motor Vehicle Act" received Royal Assent this morning (May 21, 2014).  This means that licensed amateurs are now permitted to use their radios while mobile.  It is suggested that we carry our wallet-sized copies of our Industry Canada Certification with us as this is proof that we fall within the exemption under the Act.  It is also recommended that we keep a copy of the Bill in our vehicles as it might take a while for police officers to become aware of the change.  You can download a copy of the Bill at http://www.gnb.ca/legis/bill/pdf/57/4/Bill-41.pdf .

 

A very heartfelt "Thank you!" for the efforts of all those (RAC and local hams) who participated in getting this Act amended.
